Enjoy a midday art break and learn more about Gage’gajiiwaan. The artist will lead the tour.

Gage’gajiiwaan, a solo exhibition by Cree-Ojibway artist KC Adams, reflects on the relationships between ancestral knowledge, memory and the sacredness of water. Using a variety of media, including copper, pottery and “birch bark technology,” the exhibition is a visual reminder of the knowledge bundles (traditional teachings) that are passed on to the next generation of life givers and water protectors.
